If you're looking for typical regional cuisine of Minas Gerais, there is no other place. Xapuri is, by far, the best option.

Do no forget to try the local rice and beans " tropeiro". Mke a reservation ahead of time. Indulge yourself to... More

Let me get you straight. It's not cheap but is the value you get for the food is huge. There are not many restaurantes in Belo you can spend that same amount and have half of the value in food like this one. This is real typical local food, no just a gimmick or a tourist trap. The food is... More

Ate a business dinner here on a TUE night - 12 people total. My Brazilian hosts told me this was typical regional food from Minas Gerais region. We had many different dishes - all were great. Don't know how much the bill was. Not a quiet place - but large. Great service.

Located in the region of pampulha (20 kms from city center) Xapurí remains a highlight of the Minas Gerais cuisine. The atmosphere of the place, try to reproduce the environment of a local farm. A nice place to go with your family, but not if you looking some intimacy. Good food, good service and price acceptable to local standards (... More

Amazing food and very reasonable price since plates are so big that it can even shared by 3 people. My advice is to order a main dish with beef and perhaps an appetizer, and come with a big group or entire family. It's definitely a place to stay for a long lunch or dinner.

The food is the best attractive here, certainly one of the best "mineira" food restaurants in Brazil. Pleasant atmosphere, located in the beautiful Pampulha suburb (which is a bit far from the city center, though), with a play ground area for kids. Expensive, but it is worth a visit.

Typical Minas Gerais restaurant, where you can eat in an old fazenda that is now a big (really big...) restaurant
